St Albans Beer & Cider Festival 2020

23rd - 26th September 2020, Alban Arena, St Albans, AL1 3LD

We regret to inform all beer and cider lovers that the 2020 St Albans Beer & Cider Festival has been cancelled. The uncertainty's around the Covid 19 virus including the impact on the health of visitors and our staff, social distancing, our supply chains as well as many other issues has left us with no alternative.

Once our plans are clearer and fully finalised for the 2021 event we will publish them here. In the meantime please do support your local pubs and breweries who are offering safe take away services. Information on pubs that are providing take away beer and food can be found on WhatPub and on our branch website.

The previous 2019 Festival was an amazing celebration of real ale, real cider and perry including Hertfordshire's biggest selection of cooled British cask ales, cider and perry plus live cold Key Keg beer as well as a large selection of International bottled beers and draught beers from Germany. For a taster of the event check out the photo gallery below.
